This vacation was about seeing local/rural Italy. I have been 12 other times before, but always to the key cities. This time I wanted a central place to explore. This farmhouse was perfectly located between Rome & Florence and lots of small towns to visit -- one each day. The owner, Mauro (who lives just next door) was wonderful and went out of his way to help whenever possible. The bedrooms are large with a nice living room on the 2nd floor, big dining room table -- washer (drying rack) and even a dishwasher.
A couple things to know: there is no AC but unless there is a heat wave, there is no need. Fans and windows with cross ventilation bring in cool evening breeze. Also, there is no wifi in the house, but there are spots outside (near Mauro's house) that work just fine.
My experience there was just what I wanted a typical Tuscan "casa" that gave me the "live like a local" experience. And this time I was able to see so many wonderful places that had gone overlooked before. Oh yes, you must have a car, but of course that is the best way to get off the beaten track.
Thank you for your review, Annie, it was nice to have you and your family in my house, I wish I still had you as a guest, thank you for your education, your kindness and sympathy
Beautiful vacation home
This home is so charming. We had an amazing time spending a week here with the whole family. There is so much space for everyone to spread out and feel comfortable. There is WiFi available, but only outside near the owners home.
Thanks Jonhatan, it was a great pleasure to have you as guests
Great house but, a long drive to wine country.
Thank you for being our guests Elroy, Lisa and friends, you were special guests, I would like to see you again

Location and owners were spectacular. Villa nestled into a private valley will great history
Mauro and Gala, the owners and next door neighbors couldn't have been more accommodating. The villa was exactly what a traveler to Italy would expect to see. From this location we explored all of Tuscany and sampled the wonderful wines from every location. Most places were a 30 minute drive with only Sienne and Florence exceeding that time. Both were reached by autostrada so were easy to explore for day trips
Loved it and would highly recommend anyone looking for a real Tuscany trip
Villa sits just below Cortona and is easily reached for lunch or dinner
Dear Debbie, Dana and relatives, you have been very kind to write these words, for us you have been special guests, and we would like to see you again in the future, thanks and thanks again, it was a great pleasure to meet all of you.

The best place to stay in Tuscany
The pictures on the website doesn't give justice to this wonderful place. The house is very beautiful and it's located five minutes from the train station and main road.
Mauro and his family are the most loving people you will ever meet. They did everything to make us feel like family. Mauro went above and beyond by assisting us with our needs and recommending the best places to visit. His sister Laura is a wonderful cook and great host.
The house accommodations were as describe on the web site if not better. We highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.
At the end of our 10 day stay we felt that we found new friends.
We can not thank Mauro enough for all of his kindness.
Dear Diaz family
Thank you for your words, we are happy to have met the families Diaz, you have been the wonderful guests, and we hope to see you again, with you is born a beautiful friendship, thanks again to me and Laura.
Ciao Mauro and Laura
Beautiful and magical holyday resort.
Casa le Celle is truly a magical place. The magic started when we met Mauro at the train-station in Terontola, he guided us up the narrow winding road to the house where we stayed for the next 10 days.
The old house was so inviting and charming. Our hosts Mauro and Gala welcomed us with vine and bread on our arrival, they were so good to us and helpful, Gala treated us with delicious cakes on numerous occasion.
The house is spacious on two floors, three bedroom on the top floor and one downstairs, the surroundings gave lots of opportunities to lay back and enjoy the amazing nature, sitting areas all around in the beautiful garden, small swimming pool to cool down in the heat and hammock in the shades of the trees. We ordered dinner from our hosts on Saturday evening. They invited my wife and daughter to their house to watch when Laura, Mauro´s sister prepared for the meal and made some homemade Italian pasta. The dinner was very delicious, as was the breakfast they made for us.
This is ideal location for families, both for relaxation or sightseeing as well as daytrips to Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia and other places.
On behalf of my family, thank you Mauro and Gala for making our stay so memorable, tell Tiche that the children love her.
Casa le Celle gets our highest recommendation.
Thanks Bjarni Jarlsson and family for your beautiful words, I, Gala and Laura are very happy to have had you as guests, you are very kind and friendly, and we miss you all, Tiche is sad without your beautiful kids, we hope in the future to have you even in our house
